No problem at all.

The only difficulty is our inability to comprehend it...

Nothing. I'm OK with it. Although I am working on an optical comparator to measure it.

U should be capitalized and a punctuation mark should be added at the end of infinite.

Other than that it can't be proven or disproved. someday the expanding universe will collide with itself coming in the other direction or get so large we will need telescopes just to see another star.

What is infinite? Even the stars in the sky, could be counted, but not by me. I think it's all math. Like how many decimal points, that can be infinite. The math says there is, like, 12 dimensions. One of the few things I can really believe in is the law of entropy. I know my life gets more complicated each and every day.

I think there is a tendency too humanise things, birth, life, death. and if things do not fit into that pattern, then its a concept outside our experiance, and harder for us to understand. Its like thinking about where were you before being was born? all the atoms have been in existance since time began, its only the event of them coming together that is not infinite. Then again maybe the spirit of humanity will go on for ever? then there will be no problems with it.
